“As the major travel hub in the heart of Europe, Frankfurt is the perfect location for Alphe Secondary Focus,” said Alphe Manager Stephanie Helliwell. “Germany is also one of the key source markets for international students at secondary level.”

Secondary institutions from the major English-speaking destinations, particularly North America and the UK, will be in attendance, said Helliwell. Alphe Agent Manager, Wei Xu, added, “We have already had very strong interest from agents from Eastern Europe as well as Asia.”

The European venue for the Alphe Secondary Focus event follows last year’s inaugural secondary-only workshop in Vancouver, Canada. Alison Boyer of Sacred Heart School of Halifax, Canada, a delegate at Alphe Vancouver, said, “I really appreciate what Alphe is doing by bringing good agents and great schools together.”

The three-day Alphe Secondary Focus event will take place at the Westin Grand Frankfurt Hotel from October 3-5, with registration and a drinks reception on the first evening, a full day of meetings followed by a networking dinner on day two, and further meetings on the final day.

The conference is open to high schools, boarding schools and agents working in the secondary sector from across the world. For further details on the conference, contact or +44 2074404037.
